@stace0616:  I know Bluefin Bay! My SO and I are also going up north for the holiday weekend but we’ll be roughing it in the BWCA haha…I’m jealous of your luxury accomodations.

Sounds like you have an awesome proposal idea…maybe you should use it? Or maybe you’ll get lucky and he’ll propose first! 😉

I’m going to be honest….it would depend on which guy I were proposing to.

Y’all already knew how I proposed to Shutterbug.

If I proposed to my best friend, I’d do the following: Install a new custom made version of Minesweeper onto his laptop. Encourage him to play. Make the pattern of the  revealed bombs spell out “Will you marry me?”

I did propose. It was his third year anniversary of starting his business, I cooked a beautiful meal, candles, wine etc. We were cuddling and talking about our future and I looked up at him and said ‘will you marry me’ and he said ‘yes’ (which I wasn’t expecting it!) We had agreed we wanted to get married and he told me afterwards he was planning to propose to me.  think he was a tiny bit relieved he was off the hook as far as proposing to me, since he knew getting married was a big deal to me and he was scared of doing the proposal wrong. 

We are a pretty unconventional couple in a lot of ways, we definitely treat each other lke equals, so he wasn’t intimidated or esmasculated. He didn’t want a mangagement ring, he bought me a ring and got down on one knee and made a speech, so he had his turn. He is proud that I was brave enough to ask him. I don’t regret it at all, people are impressed that I asked and I know we have really loved getting engaged.

The only thing stopping a woman proposing to man is tradition, and you get to choose what traditions you have in your life and marriage.

@stace0616:  You are such a great girlfriend! I’m sure he’s going to love it–and you should have a great time too! Crossing my fingers for good weather, they’re now talking rain (UGH).  

@Titania26:  I love your story! Such a great point that we get to choose which traditions we want to include. There are no rules!
